Braids are a great way of expressing your wild personality and adventurous spirit. Opt for a simple half-up, half- down look with braids framing your face coupled with toussled tresses for an effortlessly elegant look.

Chignon up do

We are so in love with this relaxed look. This chignon up-do is the perfect way to create a relaxed up-do look that will both frame your face and put your dress front and centre. 

Curl your hair before putting it up and leave a few strands loose to create gentle lines around your face. The best thing about this look is that it will look more and more gorgeous as the day goes on and it becomes more unstructured.
